    I looked at the mudflap app. And it uses your credit card. App shows where the fuel stops are and the price. I have fuel card, however, the mom and pop , or non chain fuel stops, have a problem processing it.

    I was on Comdata for years and recently moved to NASTC wex fleet one. Results are still coming in but it looks very promising. 45 cents off vs 20 off the advertised cost.

    If you can, just get both, mudflap will be weak for availability in the southeast, midwest quite a bit better.

    At worst just start with mudflap, it has basically no barrier to entry, 20 minutes from downloading the app you can be using it.

    Nope, technically linking bank acct directly is preferred due to the extra .02 /gal saved but if you have rewards points or cashback that may make a cc a better bet.

    If a cc or bank card not bank acct is used, theres a 50$ per transaction hold put on things, but thats typically cleared within 5 days

    Biggest downside to mudflap if your truck is newer is no def on mudflap yet i dont think (doesnt bother me, my trucks are older)
